Cavs' James opens up about midseason doubts

Kevin Love out for Game 7 vs. Celtics with concussion-like symptoms

You just wonder if he's ever going to run out of gas.

"I worked hard to get to this position".

Nonetheless, it should be inspiring for them to have made it that far without two All-Star players; the Celtics should be motivated by their being one win away from a NBA Finals berth.

Tatum, after dunking on James, taunted the four-time NBA MVP, but it was James who found a new gear down the stretch, throwing assists and burying match-winning baskets.

James has said in the past he plans to retire a Cavalier but this is his second stint in Cleveland after he left once before for Miami in 2010.

James played all 48 minutes of the game, scoring 35 points while recording 15 rebounds and nine assists.

"I just love everything about the kid, the way he plays the game, his demeanor, where he comes from", James starts.

"We said we want to do this for Kevin, " Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said. The veteran forward responded with 19 points, including the final go-ahead 3-point shot in the fourth quarter of the contest, while providing enough versatility on defense for Cleveland to switch every screen. His path was much more challenging personally as well, as he dealt with a serious heart issue that caused him to miss an entire season in 2011-12.

While losing Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals on your home floor is extremely disappointing, especially given how winnable the game was for Boston, the future is extremely bright for the Celtics.

Even with the absence of All-Stars Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward, this Celtics team overcame the odds time and time again, proving to us all that LeBron won't rule the East for much longer.

With Kevin Love going down within the first five minutes of Game 6, Green stepped up to the plate and delivered when Cleveland needed him the most.

There's one more Conference Final game in 2018 and that will be Game 7 between the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors on TNT.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens said, "I thought the biggest moment of the game was when we couldn't extend the lead in the second quarter".

LeBron James, of course, is the biggest reason why Cleveland came back from a 3-2 series deficit. I just think about what I need to do to impact this series, to impact the game, to help my team.
